Question about Samsung Televison & Video
Hi I have a Samsung projection tv that we just moved from down stairs. It is Model PCL5415R. It worked throughout the day and then last night it just clicked like it turned itself off no picture no sound but the red light under timer was on. Then we unplugged it and let it sit when we plug it back in it immediatly makes a noice like it is turning on "clicking" and turning off, but it does it 3 times and nothing! When it is plugged in the red light under timer is on. What should I do? Any amazing tricks I can try or should I have out an expensive repair man or say "forget it" and buy new. Please help my husband is so mad at me for having him move it and then it stopped working!
You will definitely have to take it to a repair shop. There are several things that could be wrong with it but the unit would have to be opened up and the circuit boards would have to check along with the lamp. All of the electrical components in projection TVs are exposed to alot of heat. Over time they can can become frail and brittle. The vibrations from the move could have damaged a component on one of the boards and then the heat from running the unit could have finished it off. I would suggest taking it to a repair shop for an estimate. Most repair shops provide free or cheap estimates( less than $100). Call them and find out before you go. Get your estimate, if it sounds like its worth the money to you to fix then go for it. If not, tell them "no thank you" and start shopping for another unit.
